Publisher British Film Institute
Series BFI Silver

First published in 1969, Signs and Meaning in the Cinema helped transform the discipline of film studies by incorporating the methodology of structuralism and semiotics. Featuring a new foreword by D.N. Rodowick, this new BFI Silver edition explores the way in which a new approach to the cinema can be combined with a new approach to aesthetics.

PETER WOLLEN taught film at UCLA. He wrote a number of books, including the BFI
Film Classic on Singin' in the Rain, published in 1992 and reprinted in a new edition in
2012. He is the co-writer (with Mark Peploe) of Michelangelo Antonioni's The Passenger
(Professione: Reporter) (1974).

D. N. RODOWICK is William R. Kenan, Jr. Professor of Visual and Environmental
Studies, and Director, Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts, at Harvard University.
